The Off Season [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 20 August 1898

The Off Season The off-season with poultry begins this month . The best poultry keepers expect the production of eggs to fall off . The hens are exhausted by their labor in producing eggs since early in the spring , and the time is coming near when they will begin to put on a new suit of feathers . The reign of the dog star is not propitious for egg production and the poultry * keeper who keeps his flock up to the average must be given credit for his skill .- The greatest care in feeding laying hens is to feed those things which will promote laying and at the same time not give them too much concentrated feed . If we give them grass and other green feeds alone they cannot eat enough of such bulky substances to furnish material for eggs , although they will eat such feed in preference to anything else . About most far ^ ms there is waste feed enough to keep fifty hens in good condition with a little addition of grain . This waste comes in the shape of waste cabbage leaves , fruit par...

The Model Poultry House [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 20 August 1898

The Model Poultry House The best poultry house is the cheapest . Not in the kind of lumber used , although a model house can be built entirely of third-class lumber . A plain box without ornament or fancy fixtures inside , is the best poultry house that can be built . A house eight feet wide , seven feet high at the front and five at the back and as long as necessary is large enough . This should be divided by tight partitions every ten feet and every other room left open on the front so as to make an open scratching shed , one shed and one room for each twenty fowls . The nest boxes and perches should be loose from the building so as to be easily removed , and the perches put on benches so as not to touch the walls at any place . A foot beneath the perches should be a tight platform to catch the droppings . Such a room would require but two perches along the lowest side , which would occupy but three feet of the width of the building . If the perches are placed thirty inches from t...

Sweet Clover Honey [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 20 August 1898

Sweet Clover Honey Several apiarists of considerable reputation have been telling of the merits of sweet clover ( melilotus alba ) as a honey plant and The Farmers Voice has given their opinions publicity knowing this plant to be generally distributed and generally regarded as a pestiferous weed . Melilotus grows everywhere east of the Mississippi river and probably west of it , although we have not seen It in that part of the country and have not consulted authorities . It is one of the clover family and will grow along barren roadsides as well as in fertile fields . Its roots penetrate deeply and it has been found to be an admirable renovator of worn out or barren soils , soon restoring them to great fertility . Aside from this restorative quality it has not been found useful as it has a rank smell when bruised and is not eaten by any animal unless to prevent actual starvation . Even the goat leaves it until there is no other vegetation . This plant blossoms profusely from July un...

POULTRY AND BEE NOTES [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 20 August 1898

POULTRY AND BEE NOTES There is a man in Pennsylvania who makes $ 2 , 500 a year from the sale of poultry , yet he owns but four acres of land . He deals in nothing but the highest class of fowls , and has paid $ 800 for eight birds which he imported from England . Eggs from these birds sold readily for $ 15 for thirteen . The market for pure-bred birds is always a good one . We were on a poultry place a few weeks ago where there is a demand from farmers for every cockerel at $ 2 each , and the cull pullets sell readily for $ 1 each . Capons sold as high as 30 cents a pound in Philadelphia last spring and did not get below 12 cents . The difference in the cost between shipping to Chicago or Philadelphia is 2 cents a pound , and with refrigerator cars the difference in time does not count . Chicago is a poor capon market at present , but is improving every year . Wnen one once eats capon he finds it far better than ordinary fowl and wants more . Chicago will learn the difference after...

A Death is an ¦ Y enemy that —^ must be A knocked out X in the first round , or he is pretty sure to conquer ill the end . . A weak JVsfstomach , an ¦ * iinriatred di gestion and a disordered liver mean that a man is fighting the first round with death . Unless he manages to strike the knock-out blow , it means that death will come up in the second round in the guise of some serious malady . When a man s stomach is weak and his digestion is impaired , the life-giving elements of the food he takes are not assimilated into the blood . The blood gets thin and weak , and the body slowly starves . In the meantime the disordered liver and the sluggish bowels have forced into the blood all manner of impurities . The body is hungry and eagerly consumes anything that the bloodstream carries to it . In place of healthy nutriment , it r...

The first to open the actual contest , and in a manner which never had been excelled , crushing out the Spanish navy in the Pacific , he has fittingly closed the contest in Asia in a battle in which not one of his men Was lost ( although six of Gen .

The Farmers' Forum [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 20 August 1898

The Farmers Forum The Fanners Forum Invites communications on all subjects from whatever point of view , the editor of THE VOIOK assuming no responsibility whatever for the Ideas expressed . No communication should exceed M words In length . Tricksters at the Fairs To the Editor : —Wherever large numbers of people gather , a class of persons is usually found who make a living by deceiving the public . They have schemes and tricks innumerable that appear to he easy and simple ; but in reality they are quite difficult and in some cases impossible to successfully perform . They have wheels and machines that are doctored to turn as the proprietor may wish to make them . They have cocoa-nut-headed negro dodgers to arouse the brutality in men and boys . They have tented shows which are disgusting in coarseness and vulgarity . Among the throngs at agricultural fairs these leeches are out of place . They contribute nothing helpful or good . They do not add to the attraction of the fair . Th...

A Plan for National Land Banks [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 20 August 1898

A Plan for National Land Banks G . W . Harper of Cedarville , Ohio , a well-known banker and one whose devotion to the interests of the common people he has proven in many ways , outlines in the following a plan for the organization of national land banks . He says : Land banks should be established because land is the best security that can be obtained . It is not so liable to fluctuate as bonds . Bond banks charge the government 4 per cent interest , and pay 1 per cent of tax , while the people pay from 6 to 20 per cent interest to these banks . Land banks will charge the governments nothing , and pay a tax of 1 per cent , while the people will pay on first mortgage security 4 per cent , and on personal security 6 per cent . The circulation will be divided among the states according to their population . Some states now have a circulation of $ 300 per capita , others but $ 6 per capita . The following plan is suggested for the farmers and business men of the country : 1 . Five cit...

Loose Smut in Wheat [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 20 August 1898

Loose Smut in Wheat The Purdue University Agricultural Experiment station has . issued the following timely bulletin on loose smut of wheat : The season just past seems to have been unusually favorable to the development of fungous diseases . This is especially true with reference to the loose smut of wheat and oats . Owing to this fact , numerous inquiries have come to the station , in regard to some method for its prevention . At present it is well known that the loose smut of wheat and other cereals is caused by a minute fungus which enters the plant while very young and lives inside its tissues , developing its fruit or spores in the head of the growing wheat , this development taking place at the expense of the wheat kernels themselves . The spores as they ripen are carried by currents of air to adjoining plants thus infscting the seed for the coming year , or thev nr- &amp;gt; washed off by rains into the soil where they may also infect the next season s crop . In this con...

Manure on Hard or Gravelly Soils [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 20 August 1898

Manure on Hard or Gravelly Soils In times past we have made quite an extensive study of the best way to get the most out of our farm manures . B . M . Vaughan in your last issue puts the philosophy of manuring in such a practical way that we hope your readers will hunt up their last copy and study the subject over and over again . We must divide the season for manure to be most profitable , as he says . And apply it at two periods—spring-summer seeding and fall seeding . We find the best use of manure made during the winter in stables that must be cleaned often to put it at once on pasture or land especially intended for corn . There is practically little available plant food in fresh manure , and the leaching that so many dread is inconsiderable , when compared to the amount lost by evaporation from a heating manure pile . Scattered when put out , it will decay but very slowly , for the reason it wants heat and what heat does for it . But it does settle solid on the wet soil , and ...

Salt Sea Water No Cure [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 20 August 1898

Salt Sea Water No Cure To the Editor . —Your No . 33 has a notice about Salt Sea Water as a Cure . I wish to leave the responsibility for it to its author . I will only say that when an author is as apodictic as he is one should expect him to know something about what he says . But , as a fact , I can state that on my sea voyages I never saw a deck-hand drink a drop of salt water if he could help it , nor at any spot of the ocean or Mediterranean where I passed saw the sea water in a bucket other than green , no matter how blue it looked deep under outside .

What the Dictionary Revealed [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 20 August 1898

What the Dictionary Revealed Miss Ruth Culberson bought her dictionary at a fire sale . It was unabridged and contained 80 , 000 words printed on 1 , 281 pages of heavy white paper . There was no appendix of weights and measures and proper names , but then she paid only 19 cents for it . Ruth laid the dictionary on the small table that stood in the center of the room , a perfect monument to ugliness , and without unwrapping it or vouchsafing any explanation as to what it was , she went into the alcove adjoining their little parlor and began to remove the dust and cinders she always carried home with her from the downtown district . Her mother regarded the package on the table with increased curiosity . She felt it and lifted it and tried to tear off a corner of the paper covering , but she did not remove the wrapper . Ruth came back into the parlor at length and sat down near the window . Mrs . Culberson looked from the package to her daughter and back again , in silent agony . Evid...

China ' s Three Revolutions [Newspaper Article] — Farmers Voice — 20 August 1898

China s Three Revolutions One revolution distracts and embarrasses a country sufficiently , but decaying China has on its hands at present three well-organized revolts , and they reach from Dungaria , on the far-west-ern frontier , to the southern provinces . Those in Dungaria and Kansuh , on the upper Hoang-ho river , are of Mohammedan origin . Kansuh is situated in the extreme northwestern angle of China proper , and is traversed by the great road leading into Chinese Turkestan . The inhabitants are partly Mongols , are Mohammedans , and have no sympathy with the government or religion of China . The revolt in Kwang-si and Kwangtung , in the south , is the aftermath of the old Talping rebellion of 1878 . The present revolt in this quarter is led by Chinese reformers , who have been trained in America and Europe and have no sympathy with the exclusiveness that is even now characteristic of the Chinese government . With China distracted by internal revolutions , and Germany , France...

R ANK , No . 3 , 354 East Susquehanna Ave ., Philadelphia , Pa ., is a remarkable statement of relief from utter discouragement , She says : I never can find words with which to thank you for what Lydia E . Pinkham s Vegetable Compound has done for me . Some years ago Ihadwomb trouble and doctored for a long time , not seeing any improvement . At times I would feel well enough , and other times was miserable . So it went on until last October , I felt something terrible creeping over me , I knew not what , but kept getting worse . I can hardly explain my feelings at that time . I was so depressed in spirits that I did not wish to live , although I had everything to live for . Had hysteria , was very nervous ; could not sleep and was not safe to be left alone . Indeed , I thought I would lose my mind . No one knows what I endured . 1 continued this way until the last of Februa...
